CHINA - World’s Most Powerful Computer

Arno Froese

China only started producing its first computer chips in 2001. But its chip industry has developed at an awesome pace.

So much so that Chinese-made chips power the world’s most powerful supercomputer, which is Chinese too.

The computer, known as the Sunway TaihuLight, contains some 41,000 chips and can carry out 93 quadrillion calculations per second. That’s twice as fast as the next-most-powerful supercomputer on the planet (which also happens to be Chinese).

The mind-boggling amount of calculations computers like this can carry out in the blink of an eye can help crunch incredibly complicated data—such as variations in weather patterns over months and years and decades.

Arno's commentary

Communist China, as we have repeatedly emphasized in this column, is destined to be a superpower in its own right.

While some of the products coming from China are considered “low quality,” that is obviously going to change. We recall that in the 1960s and 70s, Japanese cars were mocked in the West as being inferior. Today, they have developed into a world leader when it comes to passenger vehicles.

Also significant is China’s non-involvement in conflict areas of the world. They make more friends than enemies. That will also be very helpful in the not-too-distant future, for communist China to assert itself as the undisputed leader of the world’s most populated continent: Asia.
